    Server bundles

    Hi all,

    I'm hoping to get some recommendations on server bundles. What I'm looking for is an installer package that will install/configure Apache 2/MySQL/PHP5/Perl5/phpMySQL etc... onto my PC so that I can develop and test.

    Has to be the entire package with installer tho - I don't want to have to install configure on my own ... lazy and stupid about these things when I could be coding.

    I had been using phpDev from Firepages but they appear to have left the scene and I'm stuck without an upgrade path (for php5 and MySQL, etc...).

    Thanks for an thoughts or recommendations!

    I've tried DeveloperSide.NET Web-Server Suite, which is pretty good. I've also heard good about XAMPP. Good luck!

    I don't want to have to install configure on my own
    I do not think there is an all in one installer of this type but you will hve to do some configuring no matter what so you might as well learn. The more complicated one will be Apache but none of them are hard.
